Plot Summary
Anaïs is twelve and bears the weight of the world on her shoulders. She watches her older sister, Elena, whom she both loves and hates. Elena is fifteen and devilishly beautiful. Neither more futile, nor more stupid than her younger sister, she cannot understand that she is merely an object of desire. And, as such, she can only be taken. Or had. Indeed, this is the subject: a girl's loss of virginity. And, that summer, it opens a door to tragedy.

    This is a different kind of girls' movie, and certainly not a pretty one, especially its horrific head-scratcher of an ending. show more

    Proves to be a remarkably lean and incisive film about the fateful power of sexuality. show more
